History

Eden lies between the North and Middle Fork of the Ogden River, north of Pineview Reservoir. The first home was a log cabin built in 1857 for summer herdsmen Erastus Bingham and Joseph Hardy. A community was established in 1859 when fifteen families moved in via North Ogden Canyon and Pass. The settlers hired a government surveyor, Washington Jenkins, to plot the town. Jenkins said he thought the area was one of the most beautiful sites he had every surveyed and suggested the biblical name "Eden." An earlier temporary name was North Fork Town.
